Saccopoo Memorial Draft Forum>The Puzzle of Orlando Brown in 2022

Alright, so we're over halfway done with the season.

What should our decision be on Brown this upcoming offseason?

Obviously this is all tentative. But here we go.

Poll forthcoming.

For the record, this is what left tackles cost right now:

We also have Thuney on an 18/year. I'm guessing, perhaps inaccurately, that's what Brown would come out to, should we extend him this offseason.

Easy answer.

You tag him and draft a potential replacement. It isn't as though Niang is a given in his own right.

Now between now and the end of the year, it's possible he could earn a long-term deal from me (which would be my druthers; using the tag option as leverage on the contract), but as of right now I don't see this as much of a close question.

If we can get him on cheaper deal than what he wanted 3 months ago, and you think he is improving (I do) then a new deal wouldn't be bad.

This.

Using the tag, you donít have to worry about having to grab a LT in the first round unless one is there. You can draft a guy in the 2nd to 3rd if it fits and let him get up to speed for a year.

They've spent an enormous amount of draft capital on the line.

I wouldn't be opposed to the 3rd round necessarily but they need defense, defense, and more defense.

If I'm tagging Brown, it's to trade him. I'm not saying the Chiefs will, but that's what I'd do.

A team like Tennessee, or even Baltimore again would be a great fit for Brown and they have LT health issues.

The only way we can really afford to draft his replacement is with the draft capital we would get from his trade. We have a massive defensive rebuild about to happen, and we need to restock the WR room, and probably a RB too unless Clyde somehow comes back and is the same guy we drafted two knee injuries ago.

Your tune is going to change as soon as we hit free agency.

This team needs offense, offense, offense, too.

They can fill offensive holes in free agency.

I'm not drafting an offensive tackle in the 2nd round this year. No fucking way. Even if you go offense with that pick, they need TE and WR considering what they've spent there compared to the offensive line in terms of draft picks.

You simply cannot continue to spend all of your high picks at one or two positions.

They have to do something about DE that actually sticks and doesn't kill the cap like Frank Clark. The best way to do that is at the top end of the draft.

They need WR's too.

Tag him and worry about LT in the '23 draft unless a good one falls to the bottom of the 2nd or 3rd you want to develop.

You’re not finding a quality LT outside the first rd. It just doesn’t happen often.

Tag him and see what happens. Then re-evaluate your options.
